It's no wonder that the English are incomprehensible to foreigners. The authors brilliantly capture the Englishness of the 90% of society from the respectable working class upwards.
I would have easily given it 5 stars if it had included two other subcultures; the admittedly small upper class, and the troublesome non-respectable working class i.e. the Kray twins cockney fan club, lager louts and football yobs. ( )

An amusing little book of accurate insights into the nature of the English. Very funny and evocative. ( )
